Removing Hair From One's Throat And Moustache Sides
Removing Hair From One's Throat And Moustache Sides

As far as the hair on the throat and neck is concerned, there is a difference of opinion between the Hanafi Fuqaha as to whether one can remove it or otherwise.

Imam Ibn Abidin (Allah have mercy on him) states:

“One should not shave the hair from one’s throat. However, it is narrated from Imam Abu Yusuf (Allah have mercy on him) that there is nothing wrong in it.” (Radd al-Muhtar, 6/407, the same has been mentioned in al-Fatawa al-Hindiyya, 5/358)

Therefore, it will be permitted for one to remove hair which grows on the throat under the chin, for it is not considered to be part of the beard, as beard is that which grows on the jawbone.

Finally, the extended part of the moustache, i.e. the two sides which go on to join with the beard, is considered to be part of the moustache, hence it will be permitted to remove it. There is also nothing wrong in keeping this hair, as some of the Salaf (such as Sayyiduna Umar) did not remove the sides of their moustache. (See: al-Fatawa al-Hindiyya, 5/358)

Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (Allah have mercy on him) states:

“There is nothing wrong in leaving the Sibalatayn, meaning the corners of the moustache, as it is proven from the practice of Sayyiduna Umar (Allah be pleased with him) and others.” (Ihya Ulum al-Din)

And Allah knows best
